Sunday Failure

Sunday Failure

Dancers are usually so focused on perfection that it supersedes everything else. All happiness is determined by whether they had a “good class” – or not. This tunnel vision can be great for accomplishing goals, but it is a slippery slope.

You can have a laser focus on your dance goals, but while doing this, remember to enjoy what you are doing. That’s right. Enjoy the class, even if it isn’t the best one you’ve ever taken in your life. Enjoy the pursuit of perfection and avoid berating yourself if you don’t achieve the perfection you seek.

The easiest way to do this is to not ignore those things that are working well, instead of always riveting your attention on the things that aren’t working. You’ll always be working on the weaker areas, but balance it once in a while with acknowledging those things you do well.

Balance. We know all about that!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Motivational Secret #153:  
Anyone who enjoys life is never a failure.
